(The Simpsons/Futurama Crossover Crisis II#1 - BTS) - In New New York circa 3005 A.D. Professor Hugo Fansworth built a Literary Reality-Tearing Machine which he used to summon characters from a Simpsons comic to his universe. However, Bart Simpson began messing with the device, accidentally leaving it stuck in the on-mode. Hearing Farnsworth shouting out warnings to Bart to keep the device away from any books, the robot Bender sought to save the day by throwing it out the window, but unaware of its specific ability to unleash fictional characters from the pages of books he instead tried to ensure it would land somewhere no people ever went - the New New York Public Library, where they had every book ever written. Within seconds the city was overrun with hordes of fictional characters from history's greatest novels.
(The Simpsons/Futurama Crossover Crisis II#2 - BTS) -
Farnsworth's device opened a vortex next to the library, out of which
fictional characters poured to begin taking over the city. Since there
were graphic novels in the library, this included heroes from both the
DC and Marvel universes, who made sure to stand partially in shadows for
Simpsons/Futurama Crossover Crisis II#2) - As Bart Simpson pursued
Anne of Green Gables and Pippi Longstocking, who were in turn chasing
his sister Lisa, he was intercepted by Wolverine and Captain America.
Stopping, he saw they were accompanied by fellow heroes Batman, Wonder
Woman, Superman, Spider-Man and Thor. Spider-Man
warned to prepare for a brutal beat down, but Bart, aware that comic
characters would fight one another at the drop of a hat, informed the
Marvel heroes that their DC compatriots had called them sissies.
Immediately Wolverine and his friends leapt for the DC heroes,
allowing Bart to escape as a melee erupted.
(The Simpsons/Futurama Crossover Crisis II#2 - BTS) - The fictional characters, presumably including Wolverine and his fellow comic book heroes, were eventually persuaded to return through the vortex to the pages of their books.
Comments: This iteration of Wolverine was created by Ian Boothby, James Lloyd and Steve Steere Jr.
Since he's a representation of the
comic book Wolverine brought to life, he should in theory have all the
real Wolverine's powers.
What reality he comes from is a
question to debate. He appears in the Futurama comics universe, which I
believe is distinct from the Futurama cartoon universe (or rather
universes, since there's no question Futurama has a multiverse, and the
comic switches from being set in one reality to another during the
series' run). However, he got there via a portal allegedly extracting
him from comic books, so really only his comic is native to that
reality, and it's long established that all fictions are based on actual
realities. So it could be argued that he is a fictional construct based
on 616 Wolverine, except that Farnsworth's device wasn't intended to
create beings based on literary characters but instead to bring them
into Farnsworth's reality. Then there's the option that he might be from
the Ideaverse visited in Deadpool Killustrated or the Realm of Fiction
from Fantastic Four: True Story - which might be one and the same
Profile by Loki.
Wolverine is an alternate reality counterpart of
but has no known connections to:
Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, Captain America, Spider-Man and Thor
Wolverine's fellow comic book superheroes also confronted Bart Simpson. Superman complained about Bart calling their media of origin graphic novels, asking what was wrong with calling them comic books. Before they could beat Bart up, he tricked them into fighting one another.
